Manchester City are chasing a monumental trophy treble, while Liverpool have one trophy secured in their bid for an unprecedented quadruple.
And Sunday’s titanic clash will go a long way in deciding who will go on to finish top of the Premier League and win the title, with the visitors one point behind Pep Guardiola’s side.
To celebrate this, Bet365 have announced plans to give out a £5 free bet to customers betting on the game.
City come into the game off the back of a tough 1-0 victory over Diego Simeone’s dogged Atletico Madrid team. Kevin de Bruyne’s second half finish was the difference between the two teams on the night, and the Belgian midfielder is 7/1 to open the scoring on Sunday afternoon at the Etihad.
Liverpool’s away trip to Benfica was a little too close for comfort despite the 3-1 scoreline suggesting otherwise. Luis Diaz’s late goal gave Liverpool a two goal cushion, and the Colombian star is 3/1 to score anytime versus Manchester City.
This fixture at The Etihad has seen 21 goals in the last six Premier League fixtures, and it’s no surprise that Both Teams to Score is currently priced at 8/13.
With Mo Salah, Phil Foden, Sadio Mane, Raheem Sterling, Luis Diaz, Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez all likely to start or be included from the bench, it’s easy to see why this fixture has become the most eagerly anticipated in years.
The 2-2 draw at Anfield earlier this season was one of the highest-quality Premier League games of the season, and now the rivals prepare for a showdown that will have direct implications for who eventually becomes champion.
Bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “It’s without doubt the biggest weekend of this year’s sporting calendar with the Grand National, The Masters in Augusta and the Premier League blockbuster between Manchester City & Liverpool.
“To celebrate this we’ve given all new and eligible customers a £5 free bet on the biggest Premier League game in recent memory.
“We have two of the best managers in the world with two of the best teams going toe-to-toe. Will the brilliance of Kevin de Bruyne come to the fore in such a monumental match or will the Egyptian King Mohamed Salah find his shooting boots just in time to put Liverpool in pole position to reclaim their Premier League crown?
“It’s a game that can’t be missed.
“We’re expecting our £5 free bet offer to be extremely popular with customers with many looking at the bet365 Bet Builder markets, or our Bet Boosts for extra value.
“I’ll be keeping one eye on the match and one on the trading book, in what could be the most bet-on game of the season! Good luck to all our customers.”
